Description

This work element covers the USGS contract for their collection of real time discharge measurements at the USGS stream flow gauge site and maintenance of the facility on Toppenish Creek.

Stream gauges will be used to manage screw trap and redd count activities during high flow events.  We will also use discharge information from gages.   We will collect stream stage data at several locations in the Toppenish Creek basin.  Wading discharge measurements will be collected periodically.  Stream gaging will be used to better understand flow patterns in Toppenish creek.  This will aid us in completing our objectives by allowing us to forecast runoff patterns and peak flow events which require modification of the steelhead sampling schedule (both redd counts and screw trap operation).  We considered correlating the data from the Toppenish gage with other Yakima River gauges  to see if the station was necessary but hydrographs did not appear to be similar because other tributary stations are in watersheds that originate at a higher elevation.
